After remastering the second episode, Microids is preparing for the third XXL.
„An odyssey to share made of humour, slaps, and friendship! Our two famous Gauls are back, fitter than ever and are ready to crystallize your attention in Asterix & Obelix XXL3: The Crystal Menhir! On the menu? Wild boars, laughs and slaps left and right. Faithful to its predecessor, the game will feature cinematographic references. For the first time, players will have the chance to discover this fantastic adventure alone or in co-op as Asterix or Obelix! Main story: Asterix, Obelix, and Dogmatix must put back together the mysterious Crystal Menhir! They will have to venture into the four corners of the Roman Empire and beyond, to stop a terrible threat!”, Microids‘ press release says.
The new game is being developed by a French indie studio (OSome Studio), and currently, Asterix & Obelix XXL 3: The Crystal Menhir is set to launch in the fourth quarter of 2019 (between October and December) on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac.
The third game was announced at the same time as the second one’s remastering, but they didn’t announce more details until now (and it’s still not much…). A decent platformer never hurts, and it’s going to be a new game – let’s hope we won’t be disappointed in the end…
